Err, two things.
I'm quite unhappy about this: I find this tendency towards web-only
reporting awful in every product and fight it whenever I can.
As I said: web forms/browsers usually lack all the facilities of a
editor, like autofill, proper movement and editing functions, whatever
can think of.
1. these are *bugs reports*, not technical papers.
2. If your browser can't move from field to field, or have a reasonable
interface to a text entry box, you need a new browser. I can't think
of a browser that is as bad as you seem to try to make it seem.
Which is necessary why, again?
They are quite clumsy to use if you could have the full
power of a real editor instead.
Do you really need Microsoft Word or emacs just to type some lines of
text, and maybe do a few paste operations?
Or do you have a browser that can't handle this.
